What I find silly about this week's proprietary versus open source discussion is that I don't think proprietary is the biggest threat to open source. The biggest threat to open source is from within. Open source as a whole needs to do a much better job in preventing the discussion of Open Source Community versus Open Source Vendor from getting out of hand. Open source must accept the role commercial vendors have in their community or they will soon find their community is financially unsustainable and difficult to be taken seriously. Vendors must also prove to open source that the community is better off with them than without them or that vendor is going to have have little influence at the community's leadership table.
It takes awhile for open source as a community to respond positively to the changes that new or successful vendors may bring to their community. Most new vendors in open source soon realize that their standing in such communities is ranked not by their company's success but by how much they give or don't give back to their open source community.

Poor document collaboration practices are very expensive, time-consuming and the source of much frustration, according to Perforce Software, which commissioned an independent survey of business professionals. Conducted online by Harris Interactive®, the July 2012 Knowledge Worker Survey of 1,004 knowledge workers in the United States and United Kingdom shows that document collaboration problems in the workplace are pervasive, frustrating and the cause of costly productivity issues—even when document sharing tools are in place. It also indicates that these issues have far-reaching consequences, including missed business opportunities, damaged reputations and poor impressions on colleagues and customers.
Yesterday, Dries Buytaert announced on his blog that Acquia has released the next generation of Mollom, the Mollom Content Moderation Platform. The new Mollom platform is being billed by Acquia as the "first cloud content moderation platform built for the enterprise". Mollom is capable of reducing the time that’s required to moderate large volumes of user-generated content. Personally having used Mollom to assist me in moderating small to medium sites, I suspect the need for something like Mollom is even greater for enterprises with an even larger web presence.
Business websites can be crippled by spam; more than 90 percent of the content submitted to websites is unwanted spam, much containing links to irrelevant sites and suspicious offers. Manually deleting spam from comments, registration and contact-form submissions is arduous work. Mollom solves the spam problem for businesses with a cloud platform that filters and removes virtually all spam submissions.
DotNetNuke (DNN) has announced a social software solution aimed at optimizing customer engagement and loyalty through online communities. DNN Social gives businesses the ability to easily create and manage communities on their existing websites, giving end-users a one-stop destination for consuming content, exchanging ideas and interacting with other community members.
DNN Social enables businesses to effectively control the customer conversation by allowing it to take place on the corporate website, instead of driving customers to a third-party social site. Thriving user communities can help reduce support costs, drive product innovation and increase sales and brand awareness at an affordable price point. During the past two years, DNN executives have told CMS Report that they believe one of the key requirements for a modern CMS is to include social functionality and have steadily moved their product line toward this direction. Available today, DNN Social attempts to reinvent how companies optimize their web presence by combining industry-leading content and community management into a single, easy-to-use solution.
